July Weddings {part 2}

The most beautiful things about flowers, is that they are a product of nature and can be used to create some of the most beautiful things on earth. There are millions of possibilities and anything you can dream we can create! This beautiful reception alternated tall and short centerpieces, using blue agapanthus, alstromeria, bells of Ireland, mixed greens, antique green hydrangea, button poms and roses.
Rose petals around your centerpieces is a fun way to make your table feel more romantic and add visual impact and romance to your centerpiece.
Bouquets are the most personal pieces of any wedding. I always say, if your are going to be picky about one thing in your wedding, let it be your bouquet, especially if you have a tight budget, don't settle for something you don't want. Make sure you don't skimp out on your bouquet (it's alright if your bridesmaids don't have exactly what you imagined) it's your bouquet that will be in all the pictures and with you all day, so get what you want. Do some research and print pictures to show your consultant. Pictures speak a thousand words and help us to know what style you are looking for.
This fun centerpiece with a submerged calla lily is a sleek contemporary design illuminated by a white LED light from underneath.
Ceremonies are always sentimental and sacred and sometimes the chapels are big and towering. The best and easiest way to make you and your guest more comfortable and set the stage for your special day is by adding flowers to the pews, aisle, altar area and throughout the sanctuary. It helps to personalize such a giant space and gives the impression that it's set up just for you on your special day.
Don't forget about putting flowers in the foyer or by your guest book. It sets the tone for what's to come in the chapel!

Yellow and White... A Bright Delight!

These little beauties were just to pretty to pair with a million other pictures. And sometimes it's nice to have the spotlight for some of our favorites. The bridesmaid bouquet on the left is done with yellow miniature calla lilies and yellow freesia, bits of greenery around the collar and yellow ribbon. While the bridal bouquet on the right is a fabulous mix of standard white calla lilies, yellow freesia and a white ribbon wrap. The freesia smells divine and the contrast between the white and yellow is absolutely fabulous, don't you think?

July Weddings {part 1}

 This beautiful bride had a stunning bouquet of white hydrangea, white roses, white peonies and blue delphinium blooms, while her bridesmaid carried a fragrant bouquet of ruby stock with blue ribbons.
 These bouquets were beautiful and also fragrant! We love to encourage our brides, if there are no allergies, to hold something fragrant. Especially since you will be told multiple times throughout the day to hold it right in your face, why not have something that smells divine, right?
 The ceremony was held at the Chapel in the Woods in The Woodlands Texas. With potted hydrangeas along the aisle and stunning wrought iron candelabras with soft and full white and pink arrangements the chapel was decorated beautifully.
 The reception was held at the Woodlands Resort and Conference Center. In such a large ballroom we often encourage the use of multiple styles of arrangements. By having different heights throughout the room you automatically increase the "wow" factor for your guests, plus it makes a big room feel more intimate.
 Don't forget that most weddings and receptions are best completed when all the little details are paid attention. Flowers can brighten up any space in a reception hall. Your place card table, the guest books table, the gift table and buffet tables can all be personalized by using coordinating arrangements.

White Weddings.

 White is the quintessential wedding color. It is the most popular by far, and pair so well with any other color. We love how fresh it is and how much it can brighten up a room. These white arrangements added variety and texture to the reception. By alternating low arrangements of white hydrangea and tall arrangements of white gladiolas and curly willow the room felt more intimate and interesting.
Often times church sanctuaries or chapels can be dark. White flowers are always a beautiful way to bring in some light. This altar arrangement of hydrangea and gladiolas added height and interest to the altar area while complementing the candelabra arrangements on either side.

Perfectly Purple Tulips

 Augusta Pines is a beautiful venus for a reception and we absolutely LOVE the staircase in the reception hall! But the best part about Augusta Pines is how beautifully it sets the stage for stunning floral arrangements, especially these fabulous purple centerpieces.
 A great way to wow your guests at  your reception is to use alternating heights in your arrangements. Tall arrangements scattered throughout the room create visual height that helps create a more intimate feel for your guests. These tall arrangements in fluted vases are filled with plum gladiolas surrounded by a cloud of white hydrangeas, While the low arrangements are a mix of white hydrangea and plum tulips.
The bridal bouquet was a beautiful mix of all white blooms including: tulips, roses and peonies, While her cake was accented by white cymbidium blooms and a bed of lavender rose petals.
